Quasar #9 (1990): 1st MODAM; Captain Atlas

Finally, an issue of Quasar I can get behind, if only because it features a variation on my #1 favorite Marvel villain: MODOK.  AIM creates her to sell to folks who hire them for their scientific mercenary skills.  A bunch of villains have one-panel appearances…

…Way too many to tag.

None seem impressed by—or want to hire—MODAM, until…

Two old and largely unfamiliar faces appear with a case full of cash.

This is the first appearance of Doctor Minerva since the Captain Marvel books of the 1970s. Her pal is Captain Atlas. Next issue, Atlas will be revealed as Kree, but for now they’re just two villains with a briefcase of cash who hire MODAM to steal Quasar’s quantum bands.

It’s a bad comic.  But it’s got MODAM.
